I don't want people to "Friend" me

How doI stop people making me a friend....this would seem to be a privacy issue....I don't want to be friend s with anyone and I don't want people to friend me either. How do I adjust the privacy settings

If you are on a PC:


Hover over your Profile picture > Settings > Privacy >

"You will see a couple of boxes you can tick/untick according to whatever you want."


Note: "Make my profile public":

_Allow others to find your profile and follow you. Allows you to follow others. Enrolls you in public leaderboards.

Just turn off the make my profile public option here:

It will surely help :)

You can get rid of your existing followers by clicking on their profile. There you will find a little gear in the right corner, next to the name. This gear will offer you the option to block that person.

Thanks - yes I was already doing that but thought there might be way to just stop people following me!
